Molycorp and its subsidiary companies produce some of the highest purity rare earth and rare metal materials in the world. These highly advanced processing capabilities allow us to meet increasingly demanding specifications by manufacturers that need very pure and custom engineered materials.

Technologies and applications that need high-purity, custom engineered rare earth materials include: multi-layer ceramic capacitors, widely used in many advanced and consumer electronics; phosphors for compact fluorescent lighting, plasma screens, and LEDs; high-precision lenses and optics; electronic sensors; super alloys; advanced ceramics; thermal barrier coatings; lasers; neutron radiography; and many others.

To help serve these and other high-end markets, we produce these rare earth materials to the following purity levels:
